High-level subject recognition technology now makes it possible for Sony’s Real-time Eye AF function to track and accurately focus on bird eyes, even if the bird suddenly takes flight or the framing changes. This innovative function easily meets the many challenges of bird photography0.
Improved Real-time Eye AF for animals0
Primarily designed for cats and dogs, this feature employs advanced subject recognition technology to reliably track and focus on animal eyes0. It even works if the animal’s face is upside-down.
Real-time Eye AF
Combining state-of-the-art AI technology and evolved Fast Hybrid AF algorithms, Real-time Eye AF in the α1 tracks and focuses on human eyes with approximately 30% greater precision than the α9 II.
Select a subject, half-press the shutter, and the camera will track and maintain focus automatically. Turn on AF face/eye priority for seamless AI-based tracking of human, animal, or bird eyes.
Wide, fast, precise AF tracking
The α1 features focal plane phase-detection AF that is sensitive, fast, and precise. The 50.1 MP sensor and BIONZ XR engine provide 759 selectable phase-detection points0 covering about 92% of the image.
